a question about reinstalling my printer..?

I misplaced the manual, generally, when reinstalling, should you put the printer disc in before you plug the printer to your computer, or should you go printer first, disc second?

    Turn the printer on

    Insert the disc

    "Do not connect the USB cable until you are prompted to do so on the screen"

    You do realize you can download the manual from the manufacturer's website, right? Pretty much every major electronics company publishes the manual and software in a digital form on their page in case you loose it.

    But yes, you generally run the installer first, and then at a certain point, it will ask you to plug in the printer to PC or to scan the network if it is a network printer and you're wanting it to be setup for network use.

    Generally you go to the disc first. You can find the specific instructions for your printer by going to the manufacturer's website. You can download the manual from there and any undated drivers.
